Alex Jeffereys Course
Students Up To No Good ?
Alex Jeffreys Course and his mentoring program are very much praised. But what are Alex Jeffreys students up to? Generally they are the most helpful and hard working talented bunch and great friends to be with. But right now they are not impressing me that much.
What’s wrong? They came up with this tag game in which when you get tagged it makes you quite busy and perhaps uncomfortable. You have to make a post about yourself in which you must reveal 25 things about you. Well, I got tagged today and that’s why I’m writing this post.
Of course I don’t have to participate but I could never disappoint my friends from Alex Jeffreys Classroom. They are very dear to me and especially Gazzman who came up with this. And Gazzman aka Gary Simpson is extremely helpful. Petra Weiss is the one who tagged me and she is also very helpful. I’d love to name all my friends from Alex’s students like Paul Hooper who are giving selflessly but there are a several hundreds of them.
OK, I admit I may be stalling a bit here. So let’s get right to the 25 points.
25 Points You May Want To Know About Vance Sova
I’m going to be very selective here as this is the internet and it will be accessible everywhere forever. That being said I’ll be honest.
1) I have always liked the truth and honesty. That has made me some great friends and some enemies. The friendships tend to be everlasting while the enmities not returned fizzle out.
2) I have a great partner who is so much better than me in so many ways. She is a great human being that contributes heavily to the world being a better and kinder place.
3) I love cats now as much as I love dogs. I used to prefer dogs but came to appreciate cats for their independent spirit.
4) I don’t like living in the past which seems to be a preferred mode of being for so many. Each day is a new day, brand new and should not be tainted with yesterdays. It doesn’t harm to keep the good things but dwelling too much on them can sacrifice today as well.
5) I’ve been called a philosopher in my teens. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t done some unwise things.
6) I like to travel everywhere. If I had to name favorites it would be Greek Islands, parts of Japan and Kauai. I haven’t been everywhere though and mostly I like wherever I am at the time.
7) I find that thinking too much is not good. An example would be a game of tennis. The body does its thing beautifully. Too much thought tends to sabotage it.
8) Right, I like to play tennis. Not that I play it every day or that I’m really good at it but it is the best game I know of as far as sports go. You can boo me later in comments if you want. I stopped playing contact sports because I want to remain in one piece.
9) Swimming in the ocean or a lake or a clean river is what I find the most relaxing and enjoyable activity.
10) I wanted to be a writer-reporter as soon as I learned how to read.
11) I wanted to be an astronomer.
12) At times I don’t mind being not too modest and detest false modesty. By that I mean if I’m good at something I don’t keep saying that I’m not, especially if somebody else points it out.
13) I used to play badminton and between the ages of 10 and eleven I won a game against an adult player. That made me incredibly proud and the man humbled and crying. He beat me in another game 1 or 2 weeks later. I think he was a better player but underestimated me in the first game on my home turf.
14) Isn’t this crazy, 25 points about me? Anyway have to go on. Up to 4th grade I thought I couldn’t sing. But it was because I never really tried, being too shy. The teacher in that grade gave me a mild praise when I made a small attempt to sing at one class and I ended up singing in a choir at a wedding the next year.
15) I love to sing. Most people think I sing well.
16) I love to play the guitar.
17) I love to play the guitar and sing at the same time.
18) I love to play the guitar and harmonica at the same time and sing in between.
19) I’m aware that few of the above points could have been put together but on the other hand some of the points above these points may have been too long. I like to compensate for overdoing something and compensate for overcompensation.
20) I don’t smoke. I did smoke for about 9 years but quit a long time ago, cold turkey.
21) I drink only occasionally at modestly. Beer and wine not at the same time and exceptionally a whiskey or rum or brandy if I have to due to some important celebration.
22) I like to go for walks, especially on the beach.
23) I love AWeber. I really mean this and notice that there is no affiliate link here. I’m just linking to my other post. I’d love it if you check it out.
24) I love Alex Jeffreys list building e-book and mentoring and teaching methods. I normally don’t like people who say things like that because half the time they don’t really mean it. I really, really mean it.
25) I love Alex Jeffreys Students because they are so helpful, all of them that I’m aware of. That is the only reason why I would ever be willing to write publicly 25 points about myself. The 25 points about Vance Sova are all true and nothing but the truth. I wonder, what are Alex Jeffreys students up to next?

I just found your post using a nifty website icerocket.com which allows you to search for blogs using key words.
As a fellow Alex Jeffreys Student, I typed in ‘Alex Jeffreys’ to find a few fellow students and say hello.
It’s an interesting game Garry Simson has devised. (I haven’t been tagged yet).
If we get to meet up you can play me a tune on your guitar. I’m learning with my daughter Olena at the moment.
Keep in touch
Can you tell me how you added the ‘do follow’ bit on your Top Commentators widget?

I didn’t know about the icerocket.com site. I think it’s very good since it helped you to find my blog. I’ll check it out.
I’ll be happy to play a tune when we meet.
Re. the dofollow next to the Top Commentators if you mean the added text you can put it in by opening the text widget where you have the top commentators and there is a box near the top where you can put a name. That’s where I put it. If you meant something else, let me know.
Pretty interesting what you’ve done and how you feel about things. You’ll have to make a video of you singing with your guitar! It’s amazing how things like that can go viral.
As a fellow Alex Jeffrey’s student, I’m enjoying meeting everyone in the forum.
And anyone who likes cats is OK with me! I’m the Cat Lady and run a cat shelter. Dogs are OK, too, of course, but they are liked more often, so someone has to stand up for the kitties.
PS – If Vance doesn’t tag John, I will! But I still have my 25 things to put on my blog…

I may yet make a video like that but I’m concerned about the sound quality of it. I don’t have any good equipment for video making.
I’m glad you love cats and are taking care of those that need it the most. Being a Cat Lady must be great. A lot of purring is very healing you know.
By the way I tagged John Tanner and hope that nobody has beaten me to it. The number of people to be tagged yet is getting smaller by the hour.
We love you too man.
Like your list – especially #4. I like to approach things the same way, but I’d qualify it a bit, by adding that there are certain things and memories that make us who we are.
So take the good stuff with you into the next day and leave the dross behind and forget about it – if you see what I mean?

I’m tickled pink. I enjoy being in contact with great guys like you. We can’t go wrong learning from one another.
I look forward to meeting as many as possible from Alex Jeffreys Class.
I identify with #1 very strongly. I make a great friend and a hideous enemy.
#3 – I’m a dog lover. I don’t really have a great affinity for cats but they ALWAYS come to me. I’m actually a lover of all animals and nothing gets me crankier than to see somebody being cruel to an animal. If I see that then I just have to help the animal. Which usually means bad news for the idiot hurting the beast.
#10 – writing is one of my great loves. Reading also.
#25 – You LOVE Alex Jeffreys? Well… I don’t love him, I mean… I like him but I don’t frikken love him. The GazzMan has to draw the line somewhere.
.-= Gary Simpson´s last blog ..Internet Marketing – Copyright Thief Exposed! =-.
September 4th, 2009 at 10:23 am
Hi Gary aka GazzMan,
Which do you prefer to be called? I like both names so I think I’ll alternate between the two unless you state your preference.
I’m glad that we agree on #1. That is something that is fundamental to being me and to being you.
If cats come to you that’s great. Cats don’t come to bad people.
#10 is something you excel at. I invite everybody reading this to visit your site. Reading is something that would be extremely hard to live without.
#25 I think you are purposely teasing me. I didn’t say I love Alex Jeffreys. I said I love Alex Jeffreys e-book and Alex Jeffreys Students.
I do like Alex Jeffreys a lot though because he does care for people and his students especially.
some great stuff there mate,so you are quite the musician then? I tried to play the guitar and got as far as playing a little bit of wonderwall, found it to hard.
Giving up smoking is great I recently gave up its disgusting habit but I still find myself drawn to having one while drinking a beer.
great stuff mate

Nice of you to stop by my blog. I appreciate having the guitar to have fun with. These days I don’t play nearly as often as I used to but it’s always nice to come back to it. Giving up smoking is not as hard as it is made up to be. I’m glad that you gave it up too. Make sure you don’t slip back into the habit by having more than one with your beer.
Great job on your 25. # 10 You can read and you write extremely well ( I think I have said thias before ) So you doing # 10 would be a piece of cake. Dogs and cats, I have them both. The true unalderated love that a dog can give you vs the true unalderated independence from a cat. Maybe this is why I have them both, being a Pisces, all balck and white with little grey. Anyway Vance great job, enjoyed reading them and now I know a little bit more about you

I appreciate your kind comment. Dogs are wonderful and they too have personalities. I remember fondly all the dogs I came to know. Especially 2 dogs from my childhood stand out. I think of them almost as of people. Cats are wonderful too. They can be very affectionate too and their purring is therapeutic. I think that cats are greatly underrated in most peoples eyes. I read your 25 too and made a comment. I enjoy reading your stuff.
Hi Vance i have just got back from my hols and put up
a quick post in the forum which you read and now you have tagged me. just had to come over to your blog to find out what all this tagging is about .Well! you have explained it very well , vance your honesty and description of your life always makes for interesting reading. I like point one & twelve: point one I believe the truth never hurts anyone ,point 12 people with False modesty,if they only knew people can see right trough them. oh and point two what a lovely compliment to your partner and if she makes the world a better place we need more people like her.
thanks you for tagging me

Thanks for the kind comment. You have picked the 3 points that are hugely important to me. The truth can’t hurt anybody but unfortunately there are those who can’t handle the truth and prefer to be lied to and to lie. I’m glad that you accepted the challenge.
I look forward to reading your 25.
Great list, Vance!
I liked 10 an 11, mostly because you went back into you childhood, maybe? When I was at my list, I think I overlooked that most important part of life.
I’ll keep stopping by for sure,

September 5th, 2009 at 12:01 am
Thanks for the visit and comment. It’s great that you liked #10 and 11. Childhood is very important in forming an outlook on life and it helps when there is some encouragement. But at any point in life I think that encouragement is one of the greatest gifts anyone can give.
I look forward to reading your points and will visit your blog today.
Hi Vance, I must have missed a button, been asleep or had a short circuit in my brain (or, I’m just old), but I could have SWORN I commented on this post.
Definite agree on #1 probably why I suck at ad copy as well, I just don’t like hype. (Yes, Gazz if you see this I will probably be getting your book)
#3 I like both as well, but more from a distance. We have decided not to have animals just get too attached. It’s hard enough to lose loved ones let alone pets.
#4 Also agree. Can’t change the past. Need to live now and try to do what we can without fixating on the future.
#5 I am a bit of a philosopher too, but I tend to focus on such weighty subjects like why do toilets flush clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counter-clockwise in the Southern.
#15 I like to sing as well. My wife has a opera quality soprano voice, so my singing is confined mostly to when I am in the shower. I tried to learn guitar in college, but my fingers are too big and clumsy to finger the chords properly.
#23-25 are all strong agrees!
You have done a good job on your blog.
(Hope it posts this time)

What a great comment. Was the first one this good? I’m almost glad you missed the button.
You know, any subject is good to philosophize on. You never know where it will lead or develop into.
Singing in the shower is good too for the spirit and the heart. When we meet I’d like to hear your singing voice. It may be a hidden and undiscovered talent especially if you only ever sing in the shower.
Thanks for making a visit here again.
I hope you’ll come back.
So now I am tagged.
I hope to get my list out this weekend,
keep up the good work, you are really active in the forum.
I wonder what Alex has planned, its been two weeks
he’s been gone.
We all have to keep this going even when the course is finished, (whenever that is).
Between Alex, Rich Schefren and all the fellow students,
I think we have a real great opportunity to succeed and prosper.
What do you think ?

Thanks for coming over here and for accepting the challenge. I’m active in the forum since that’s what Alex keeps on emphasizing. And I’m making some good friends there too. Alex Jeffreys is a cool guy, he replies to the forum posts too quite often. Now of course since his wedding he’s been on honeymoon with his wife Katie. Swimming with sharks and all that.
We’ll keep this going of course and still keep in touch with Alex and one another. We do have a real and great opportunity to succeed and prosper. Absolutely.
Please let me know when your post is up. I’m sure your 25 will be very interesting.
I did it, happy reading.

You’ve done your post and it reads well. I like your points and commented on your blog.
Thanks for taking up the challenge and reading my points.
The weekend is good to have and I’ll have a great one. Enjoy yours and take some rest too.
Your list is great! #14 rings a bell with me. I was so turned off by my 5th grade teacher for trying to make me sing in front of the class, that I didn’t ever sing during my school years.
I went on to become a professional musician (and a choir director at that…)
P.S.: I hope I’m not missing the boat on this tag thing. I don’t think I’ve been tagged yet, but I’m not sure if I know to read the “secret code”.

It is amazing how we are all unique and also similar. The kind of teacher we have, especially at school can make a world of difference.
Are you still practicing music as a profession? It’s really good that we can all enjoy music and music making even if we don’t turn pros.
I’m sure somebody will still tag you. There’s no secret code. Usually it will be in comments on one of your posts.
Thanks for your visit and comment.
Hi Vance ! I finally made it … LOL … and glad I did becuase you have an intriguing list.
I found rather late in life that I like cats too. I can’t actually keep one where I live right now, but one day I will have another (or maybe two !)
I used to play badminton myself when I was younger. In my humble opinion, it really is the superior racquet game and deserves a much wider audience. One or two of my squash-playing friends used to tell me that they thought it was a bit “soft”. I used to suggest that they come and play singles with me for an hour and THEN tell me if they thought it was soft ! Unfortunately, an old shoulder injury has been giving me severe “gyp” these days. I suspect that the source of the injury is back in my sporting past somewhere. Anyway, all racquet-game-playing is firmly in the past 🙁
And speaking of the past, I know that “The Past is Prologue” and it’s often important to understand how you’ve got to where you are. Equally, as Alex has taught us, we need to have goals and plans about how to get there. But her and now is the only moment in time that we can truly control what happens to us.

September 7th, 2009 at 3:30 am
It looks that we have more than a few things in common.
I think that cats are largely misunderstood and often maligned. Their reputation is completely undeserved. For a while I even bought into it. You know their being selfish etc. The truth is that they are very sensitive and that they do care about their human companions. The stories about their faithfulness never seem to get wide spread as they do about dogs.
Badminton is certainly not as easy as it looks. I’d say that it is just about as demanding as tennis. But people usually laugh at that.
They can only think about lazily playing it on the beach when the goal is just to keep the shuttlecock in the air.
I’m really sorry that you can’t play it anymore. I hope your shoulder will somehow get better and you’ll be able to play again.
Alex is right about planning. It can impact our future. But everything has to be done in the present moment, now, now, now. Each now is a present moment that quickly becomes the past. No matter what we project into the future nothing will happen unless we take action in each now.
Of course we all know that but tend to forget.
Nice list there 🙂
Playing all of those instruments at the SAME time sounds challenging. I used to play Bass only cause it had four strings instead of 6!
Looks like Trevor left the same comment on my site too! I bet that has been left on every ones, never mind.
September 7th, 2009 at 8:28 am
It is interesting what you say about playing the bass. For me that is a very difficult instrument to play. The bass has to go its own way and for me when I try to play the bass I tend to get sucked into the main tune.
I was pleased with Trevor’s comment but if he gives the same comment everywhere than he’s a lazy bum and insincere too. I’ll investigate and may erase his comment or just leave him exposed.
Nobody wants a copy and paste comment. Let’s keep track of tricksters who try to do that.
Thanks for commenting and visit again.
You know what… I live in the UK, have been online for a few years and had no idea who Alex Jeffrey’s was up until about a two weeks ago when I saw his wedding video where he flies in on a helicopter.
Did it get my attention? Silly question – now everywhere I go I see the man’s name. Funny how things work out. Am off to check out his traffic ebook – thanks.
November 11th, 2009 at 8:32 pm
So you’ve discovered Alex Jeffreys, good for you. There’s a lot on the net about him.
I hope you’ve learned something on my blog too.
Thanks for commenting.
I really like #6 and #22! I see that you love to be outside and maybe do some meditation. You will go far mister!
